Ron roars back

RON Barnett made a successful reappearance for IT Sports Mixed Tennis division four leaders Heworth.

He teamed up with Louise Haritakis, his partner from last year, to dominate the scoring against Wigginton, whom they replaced at the top with a 63-45 victory.

Wigginton had previously got the better of York 58-50 but York got back to winning ways to issue Sherburn's first loss after they could not beat Bob Audsley and newcomer Barbara Lynde.

Cawood's last gasp win at Sutton on Derwent came as Eddie Burton and Sue Matchett won their final rubber 9-3, but they lost the chance to go top by losing to Civil Service.

In division one, Rob Jones and Belinda Turnbull won half of Poppleton's games in their 64-44 win at Civil Service.

Fulford II just beat Castlegarth while Fulford I's Govind Baker and Eleanor Crooks were the key to victory at York II.

Poppleton are the new leaders of division two after victory against Selby, whose Rob Jackson and Lucy Godwin were unbeaten.

Graeme Butcher and Karen Hornby led Copmanthorpe to their first win of the season a 77-31 thumping of Stillington.

Andrew Lowson and Faye Garland ensured Fulford stayed top of division five just ahead of Stillington, who had two narrow wins against Wigginton and Poppleton. They won the latter by just two games against Poppleton thanks to Graham Cookman and Katy Fowler winning their final rubber 12-0.

Wheldrake maintained their unbeaten record in division seven by getting the better of Fulford with new partnership Don Grant and Angela Smith topping the scoring.

Appleton Roebuck slipped into second place with a good win against Tadcaster and Dunnington lifted themselves out of the relegation places with a final round win at Poppleton.

Anthony Downing and Jane Boddy were among the week's top scorers for Stamford Bridge in division eight winning over half the total games to end Escrick's reign at the top.

Escrick bounced back with a win at Tollerton while Rowntree Park, who are still having to play on two courts, managed to get a winning margin against Bubwith.

Alne are closing on unbeaten division ten leaders Wheldrake after wins against Dunnington and Strensall the latter 89-19 victory being their biggest since joining the league.

Glen Melia and Karen Thomas led Heworth to a 67-41 win against Stillington.
